Why another job site?
Creating Headhunted was driven by two things:
Lack of quality in the current space
The quality of current job sites for tech in Australia is sub-standard. We believe there's an opportunity to create something more useful.
Exposure for Innovative Companies
There are a lot of innovative companies in Australia across a variety of sectors such as AgTech, Bioinformatics, Blockchain, E-learning, Fintech, Robotics, Space and Virtual Reality. We want people to be aware of what's going on in the Australian ecosystem.
By working with companies to centralise this information, we believe we can be the best place to discover tech jobs in Australia that are the right match for you.
Simplify searching for your next job
Headhunted wants to make finding a tech job that matches your skills and lifestyle easier. Do you have a new family and want a job that's 9-5 with flexibility? Perhaps you're looking for opportunities that demand a niche technology skillset.
Highlight innovative tech companies
Did you know we have startups in the satellite industry in South Australia? How about a quantum computing startup in Sydney or a block-chain based power company in Perth? There are literally hundreds of these tech companies and we want to let you know what they're up to.
Demystify the job application process
Know who you're working for, their company culture and a clear understanding of their interview process.
We believe that if you're looking for a job, you don't need a public presence saying so. All job seeker profiles will be private and you can selectively choose which companies have the opportunity to contact you directly.
The worst thing would be to lose the trust of the users on our site. We believe that keeping operations as public as possible is a good thing.
You can search all jobs on the site without logging in. You can set up email alerts [in progress] by providing only an email address. No real name or profile setup is necessary.
As technologists, trust and privacy are paramount. You don't want your current employer to know that you're looking for a job. You don't want recruiters to contact you with positions that aren't a good fit or are misrepresented.
